You’ve Got to Spend Money to Make Money: How Much Does it Cost to Self-Publish?

Often times as we write our stories, we seldom consider what the cost of seeing them to print can be. Currently, one of the books I’m reading (will post a full review very soon) states in its “Publish Thy Self” section that in an ultimate worse-case scenario an self-published author can end up with $20,000 worth of debt on their credit card and a basement filled with unsold books. Of course, this is definitely not the fate of every indie author, because with good common sense practices, you don’t have to go deep into debt to see your dreams come true.

My good friend, Kylie Betzner, outlines some of the costs indie writers face. It truly is eye-opening.
